Anyone know of good sources for longer length nature sounds? I mean like an hour of rainfall with thunder, or forest sounds, etc. 5.1 physical formats work, as do like digital files. Hell I would love an album of this stuff on Apple Music in Atmos, but I don't know if that's a thing yet...

This is an older SACD. I enjoy it, but you get a few loons along with the booms.
Do you mean there's also bird sounds from time to time?

Can't tell if you'd like the content, but anyway:
Why would you think I wouldn't like? Is there music too?

No, there's no music, no narration - as the description says, it's a story without words.
For me, it's a "one-off" title, but I don't regret purchasing it. The section Rain Drops/Lake/Fire/Storm might work for you, but it's no audiophile recording.
Anyway, here's one more title (haven't heard it yet):

I believe I’ve got a couple; can’t remember straight off; but the birds, (the little tweetin’ Dino SOBs drive me nuts, won’t let me sleep through it!)
I’ll have a dig through in the next couple days. Boonie’s DTS above looks interesting, don’t believe I have that one. A few distant Seagulls might be OK.

I thought the Solitudes SACD looked familiar....I have that one as well, and I now remember cueing it up a few times at night when I was having problems sleeping.

I do have this one, and I'll listen to it every once in a great while. As you can imagine, the surf is very repetitive but you certainly get the impression of you being alone on a beach. There are a few sea birds and dripping sea pools but mostly surf.

I just posted my contribution to Nature sounds on IAA.
Quad recording of some very relaxed surf in French Polynesia...
They need to review it but it will hopefully be posted tomorrow or Wed-

It'll be "Noon on a Polynesian islet in Stereo and Surround 4.0 - German F (5.1 flac Download)"
